When a camera is out of reach, the cutest baby moments often occur. However, sometimes a mother or father’s perfect timing can result in a fantastic memory to cherish for years. That is the case in this video of a baby twin duet.
Twin babies, wrapped in swaddling blankets, gaze up at the camera. While listening to their mother sing over them, they make the best facial expressions. They begin to contort their faces and move their lips. They eventually start singing along with their mother, Natalie.
‘Our sweet baby twins have heard this song since they were in the womb,’ Natalie Ledbetter wrote. They were 4 months old in this video, but because they were born prematurely, their adjusted age was only 2 MONTHS OLD when this was recorded!’
The twins look at their mom and listen with their eyes wide open. They make adorable little smiles and funny expressions as she sings. They stare directly at her the whole time she beautifully sings to them.
Natalie writes, ‘When I began singing, they instantly lit up and knew exactly what to do.’ Sure enough, the twins start vocalizing. They make sounds and shape their lips to attempt to form words.
2 months old is roughly the earliest a parent or caregiver should expect to hear vocalizing from a baby. They can ‘coo’ and ‘gurgle.’ Some babies make vowel sounds like the twins in this video.
Babies communicate with sounds and also with smiles. They wait for an adult response and often mimic what they see their parent do with their face. These twin babies decided to mimic the singing right down to the shape of the lips. It is a much-needed, daily dose of adorable!
